What is a Creative Commons License?

Creative Commons licences provide a standardised way to give the public permission to share and use your creative work — on conditions of your choice. CC licenses let you easily change your copyright terms from the default of “all rights reserved” to “some rights reserved.” Read more about Creative commons here:

How should I provide attribution?

No matter the way in which material from this site is used, you must always attribute the creator of the material.

To provide appropriate credit, you must:

  • Provide the author’s name and the title of the work
  • If possible, provide a link back to the source of the work
  • Provide a link to the CC licence that applies to the original work
  • Indicate if you made any changes to the work
  • Keep intact any copyright notice the author has provided

This information can be displayed in a variety of ways; there is not one distinct way to attribute. For examples of how to attribute material see the attribution fact sheet.

Providing proper attribution ensures that the original creator is acknowledged for their work and shows subsequent users that they are also free to use the work under the same conditions.
